Just watched this film on Youtube about the trial being put forth against Shell's activities including Human Rights abuses and the arrest and
execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa MOSOP leader along with 7 of his close associates, within Nigeria. www.youtube.com...
A truly horrific case of multi national corporation corruption and complicity and prompting in the abuse of a people to extract oil from their land.
The Ogoni, who fought for their land and rights, were routinely beaten arrested and murdered by troops of a brutal Nigerian dictatorship paid for and
congratualted by Shell. It is quite shocking to see a company who advertises on all our televisions, on their green potential around the
behave like this.
The trial was supposed to begin today but has been postponed until at least June 2nd. More information is given on this website set up for the trial,
How is it that these companies can behave like this? We know a profit must be made to ensure sharholder happiness and continual growth of a company as
demanded by the Capitalist system as set out by Adam Smith. But for this to go on quite routinely and openly and it for take 10 years to reach trial
really shows the power of such Corporations.
